ECUMENICAL PRAYER SERVICE with songs from TAIZÉ

posted Sep 11, 2018, 5:50 AM by Westminster United Church

As a non-traditional form of spirituality, ecumenical worship with Taizé songs is particularly popular with busy people. Music is its foundation. At the heart of this prayer service are Scripture readings surrounded by silence and beautiful music that can help one engage in meditative prayer.  The next service will take place on Sunday, September 23, 2018 at 7:30 p.m., hosted by Erb Street Mennonite Church (131 Erb Street West, Waterloo).
